Charles Dickens (7 February 1812 - 9 June 1870) was an English novelist, generally considered the greatest of the Victorian period. Dickens enjoyed unrivaled popularity and fame during his career, and he remains popular, being responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic novels and characters. Many of his writings, with their recurrent concern for social reform, first appeared in magazines in serialized form, a popular format at the time. Dickens often created the episodes as they were being serialized. The practice lent his stories a particular rhythm, punctuated by cliff-hangers to keep the public looking forward to the next installment. The continuing popularity of his novels and short stories is such that they have never gone out of print. Dickens’ work has been highly praised for its realism, comedy, mastery of prose, and unique personalities by writers such as Leo Tolstoy, George Gissing, and G.K. Chesterton.
